      Thanks for your feedback Dr. Martin. Has veterinary vaccine development ever been this political?

    “Vaccine nationalism” may be an understatement here. Rather, its more like a weaponization of medicine. That should be a concern not only to our government but to every patient who takes medication. And that’s not exclusive to prescription drugs. Over the counter drugs are equally at risk. Anyone taking acetominophen (Tylenol) for headaches or pain relief should be concerned with China producing 70% of the world’s raw materials. As reported by the New York Times “Chinese pharmaceutical companies have supplied more than 90 percent of U.S. antibiotics, vitamin C, ibuprofen and hydrocortisone, and 40 to 45 percent of heparin in recent years, according to Yanzhong Huang, a senior fellow for global health at the Council on Foreign Relations.”

    Your article highlights what should be considered a national security threat and not just a diplomatic spat. Patients can easily be held hostage by a bogus “customs clearance” issue manufactured to advance state interests. Canadian citizens need to be alerted to the threat to their health.
